The verdict of Kazdaghli's trial, that has gripped Tunisia for months amid bristling tensions between secularists and hardline Salafists, was delayed as hundreds of people protested outside the court. Arabic writing on placard reads 'You have stood against Tunisian intelligence and deemed it blasphemous, you'll find before you only disobedience and failure'.
